Hi Society of Robots,

My name is Jen and I work at Carbon Robotics. We're a team currently in the Qualcomm Robotics Accelerator powered by Techstars, and we are launching our Kick Ass Trainable Intelligent Arm (KATIA) by opening it up to some of the most amazing hackers, builders, makers, and creatives we can find.

We're giving away 10 robots to the people we find who can come up with the coolest ideas for using KATIA. We have already received some really amazing submissions and we would love to hear yours!

Here's the signup:

If you have any questions, I'm happy to help out or forward it to our engineers. We're really excited to see what you can come up with!

I tossed my hat in the ring with "Lefty, the One Armed, Three Legged Butler Bot", but the video leaves open a multitude of questions, among them:

1) Ballpark weight and size? Ballpark speed and torque?

2) What kind of mechanical and electrical connection exists at the "hand"?

3) I assume if you could 3D print with this it has a high degree of accuracy. Is that so?
